    If you ever need toggles let me know - I have a local archery sport shop that will give me all the toggles I can use! Graphite and aluminum. I can send you a few?

    Eno hammocks are wonderful, but their straps are utter garbage. If you want straps, return them and get some strap suspension from Warbonnet. Or, if you want to use Woopie slings, order tree hugers from any of the vendors on this forum, or get some ratchet straps and make your own.

    ENO really needs to stop selling thoes worthless things IMHO.

    Slap straps serve their purpose for your average disc golfer or beach goer. They're also easier for people who don't have a lot of backpacking knowledge to operate and since it's more an occasional use item vs. spending 8 hours in it, you don't really notice the nylon stretch.

    For backpacker/camper use though, poly straps are the way to go. Better weight and easier to use for our backpacking/camping hammock systems. I used some tie-down straps I had in the basement for a couple years. Not much different than the webbing that came on my WBRR. Cheap too.

    Yah, I bought some of those eno pro straps before I knew anything. I now use them when we just want to hang at the house in the afternoons.
    So at least they are serving some purpose. They seem to work fine for a few hours at least

    Here is the response from ENO regarding the Pro Straps:

    Hi Kent,

    Sorry to hear about your disappointment in the Pro Straps. Nylon does have a tendency to stretch, particularly the first few times of use. I couldnít find an order in our system for you. Did you purchase the Pro Straps through one of our retailers? If so, I would recommend returning them there, otherwise you can send them here along with the attached warranty form and Iíll get you set up with the Atlas upgrade for the $5 difference.

    Thanks,
    Julia McLaughlin
    Director of Customer Relations

    Sounds fair to me, since I bought them a while ago, so I'll send in the money for the replacements!
    Thanks to all who figured this out so quickly and to John for the straps - I will be Paying it Forward and putting some things up once I figure out what I like! (orange buff for sure - brand new never worn)
